The Saturday before last, Dwell on Design held the second of three (three!) home tours, covering several prefab houses. We've already seen the Eastside Home Tour: here, here, and here--now onto the prefabs. (Stay tuned for photos from the Westside Home tour, held this past weekend.)Photos by Elizabeth Daniels
The Palms Residence, designed by Marmol Radziner Prefab, was one of the earliest prefab houses in Los Angeles (see its pieces being delivered). Partner Leo Marmol lived in the house for a short time before selling it in 2009 for $2.1 million. It's made up of 14 modules totaling 2,800 square feet, plus 700 square feet of outdoor space. The house is built on a small lot and "looks inward, incorporating covered decks and a small courtyard space, giving the structure a sense of privacy despite its location on an infill lot."
